The internal communications provider has today released a major new version of its alert software DeskAlerts. Version 7 of DeskAlerts implements a host of new features, boasts an improved interface and offers mobile support for all users. Already installed in healthcare, education and customer service environments across the globe, this updated version ensures enhanced performance and a personalised user experience.
Anton Vdovin, Project Manager at DeskAlerts, said, “Our software is all about making the workplace as efficient and productive as possible. In order to achieve this, we too must look at our product and constantly ask ourselves, how can we improve? How can we meet the needs of different industries? How can we make the software easier to use? DeskAlerts Version 7 is the result of a lot of research and development, and we’re extremely excited for our clients to start using it.”
In almost all sectors and industries, communication is key; sometimes it’s the difference between life and death in hospital scenarios. DeskAlerts alert software is designed for sending group alerts, video or audio alerts and even attach documents to keep the workforce connected. Version 7 allows the process of one click emergency alerts, to send out pre-drafted messages instantly. Notifications can also be colour coded to allow for instant identification of the seriousness of an alert, similar to those used in hospitals.
The latest version is integrated with the ability to mark one click instant send alerts with emergency codes. With four colors to choose from - red, yellow, blue and green it is easy to set a color code system in place. In case of emergency, the DeskAlerts publisher can quickly select and send a pre-created message to a pre-defined audience.
The new color coded emergency notification feature is not only efficient but is also incredibly easy to use. When sending a one click instant alert, users simply choose to label the message with the appropriate emergency color code. It’s rapid and effective, but also simple and convenient.
Another enhanced feature of the DeskAlerts Version 7 is the compatibility with mobile devices including smartphones and tablets. After all, in many practical professions it is unlikely staff will be able to have a desktop computer at their fingertips all day. Employees can now be notified on any Android or iOS device using the same DeskAlerts alert software, meaning the same message can reach a variety of different platforms.
Vdovin adds, “Mobile device support has been at the top of our agenda for a long time now, as it is crucial for us to deliver a complete package. Many industries, from hospitality to schooling now provide employees with tablets rather than computers, so it is vital to be able to communicate in this way. Additionally, staff on-the-go or off site can still keep updated with company news on their smartphone, so all employees are kept in the loop regardless of their location or whether they are in the office or not.”
The re-thinked unobtrusive mode is another brand new feature, putting DeskAlerts way above the rest in terms of discreet communication. Well aware that spontaneous alert windows popping up on screen may be inconvenient for some staff members, this new mode allows individual employees to receive a subtle taskbar communication, which can be read at a later time. Combined with the colour coded alerts, this means employees can instantly see what task is more important – carrying on with current work, or reading the alert and prioritising something else.
A more personalised approach for individual users has also been prioritised by the software developers, in order to customise the user experience. The Widgets engine is the new version of the user dashboard, compiling the individual’s most used tools for total convenience. The flexible dashboard also allows users to track real-time activities and an easier interface for beginners. For new users of the software, the improved built-in help and hints will speed up the learning process. The fresh Skin Services feature also allows each message to be shaped and styled differently to attract attention.
Vdovin explains, “We’ve thought of everything – if you’re giving a presentation, simply switch to unobtrusive mode and you won’t need to worry about any messages popping up. If you’re in a training session, keep your mobile to hand and you’ll know if anything urgent crops up back at the office. DeskAlerts Version 7 has new features for all kinds of situations.”
